each state has nice areas, some cities are bustling with activities and traffic, others are quite rural. what are you looking for? Portland is 2 hours of highway driving north of Boston. Do you prefer close to the beach or mountains? fishing on a lake? shopping & museums? all of these factors make a difference in how close you want to be to certain activities. you will get better advice if you are more specific with your preferences. please let us know what you hope for.
Thanks for replying so soon. We are looking at being near a beach and not too crowded but within 30 minutes of major towns.
